“Wagging with Models of the Universe…”
Russian Literature in German Translation in 2005

Karlheinz Kasper

Deutsche Fassung


In 2005, German translators again performed extraordinary achievements in translating classic and contemporary works by Russian writers. Ganna-Maria Braungardt, Annelore Nitschke, Alexander Nitzberg, Andreas Tretner, Dorothea Trottenberg and Birgit Veit deserve mentioned alongside Peter Urban. Particularly valuable works were also again on offer from small publishing houses such as Dörlemann, Engeler, Kein & Aber, Pano, Persona and the journal Schreibheft. And the number of translated thrillers also remained con-spicuously high.
